OK...First, let me say that I use Internet Explorer to do FTP work. The following is an account of the way it appears in the browser I currently use. Go to the page of the Item you wish to correct. Look for the button marked "edit item" at the bottom left hand side side of the page. Click on that button and it should take you to a page marked MetaData Editor. At the top of the page is a button marked Item Manager. Click on that button and the "Item Manager" page should open. Toward the top of the page should be a button marked "Checkout-edit items files (Non XML)", click on it. A page should open that says "Item is checked out and ready for FTP". The second box down should have a title that says "Choose an upload method"... "Using Windows Internet Explorer". The first line should say "Click to open a FTP window in your IE Browser" Click on that button. You will probably be challenged for your email address and password. Fill it in and it will open to a page that says FTP Directory at the top of the page. On the tool bar I have a button that says "Page". When I click on it a drop down list appears. Toward the bottom of the list of choices you should see "open FTP site in Windows Explorer". When I click on it the window opens and a prompt appears that says "FTP Folder Error". Click OK and then the window goes blank. If I right click on the blank, open window a drop down list appears. One of the choices is "Login as" and when I click the button I get challenged again to give my Email address and password. When I do that the windows explorer window opens to the actual windows explorer file. You should be able to copy and past the file in here. I suspect it will ask if you want to overwrite the file. Say yes and upload the corrected file. When the upload is complete go to the Windows Explorer button marked "click here when complete". Double click on the button and it should check the finished file back in. As I say, this is the current way I get into Windows FTP.
